Back to Basics: A Choral Conducting Refresher


Saturday, September 12th




Free, registration required

Sing Ireland is pleased to bring you this free webinar on 12th September 2020 at 12pm with Orla Flanagan.

This practical webinar will offer participants an overview of the fundamentals of choral conducting, blowing off any cobwebs that may have gathered in recent months! It will cover gesture, rehearsal technique, repertoire choice, as well as some tips for continuous professional development during the COVID19 pandemic. The webinar is intended mainly for conductors, but singers with an interest in choral leadership are also very welcome to join. Time will be allocated for questions and discussion at the end of the webinar. Participants are encouraged to submit any questions in advance.

Attendance is free but must be registered in advance HERE
